Kudos to Malcolm S. (Steven) Forbes Jr., a.k.a. Steve, for his unabashed greed and selfishness. And more of the same to the media, which don't report the gulf of disparity in Steve's 17% flat tax proposal. Americans who earn approximately $25,000 or less are currently taxed at 15%. This figure fits the majority of us underclass. Steve would increase these taxes by 13.3% while reducing his own and others' who make more than $250,000 by 233%.

As chief executive officer of the prosperous publishing empire his family founded, Malcolm S. (Steven) Forbes Jr. is an enthusiastic cheerleader for American capitalism and all he says it entails: faith, thrift, hard work and willingness to take risks.

NOT VICTIMS: Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, who has been denounced by black leaders over his stand against affirmative action, turned the tables on a largely white audience of conservative lawyers. White men should not "play the victim game" in opposing affirmative action, Thomas said in a speech last week to the Federalist Society, whose members gave him a rousing ovation.

Publisher Malcolm S. (Steven) Forbes Jr. formally joined the crowded Republican presidential field on Friday, bringing to the race the disadvantage of starting late and the advantage of a self-financed campaign that could provide staying power when money problems force other candidates to fade. The 48-year-old chief executive officer of the publishing empire founded by his grandfather offered himself as a political outsider who would promote an entrepreneurial spirit as President.

Who is Kay Goodman this week? Goodman, that irrepressible crooner who knocks 'em dead in "Nite Club Confidential" at the Tiffany Theatre, was threatening to become a rotational role. First, there was Fay DeWitt. Then, suddenly, Edie Adams. And now, just as abruptly, Jim Bailey, who has made a living impersonating the kinds of singers of whom Goodman is a farcical, campy composite. This is a performance, though, not an impersonation.
